Lisbon-based sports and hospitality management platform, DETAILS, has taken over some of golf’s most famous real estate in Vilamoura, Portugal, with the vision of making it the number one sports and leisure destination in Europe.

It will oversee the assets within the Dom Pedro Hotels and Golf Collection, which have long been the favoured spot for visiting golfers in the region, including the renowned Vilamoura Old Course.

The move comes as part of a major multi-year development plan, which will see Vilamoura undergo a series of impressive upgrades, serving to further attract avid, sun-searching golfers to the Iberian Peninsula.

In addition to the Vilamoura Old Course, the Dom Pedro Hotels and Golf Collection comprises the prominent Dom Pedro Portobelo, Marina and Vilamoura hotels, as well as the Pinhal, Laguna, Millennium and Victoria golf courses, the latter of which hosted the European Tour’s Portugal Masters for fifteen years between 2007 and 2022.

Alongside Dom Pedro, DETAILS’ golf portfolio includes the Palmares, Vale Pisão and Aroeira (Pines Classic and Challenge) courses, taking the total to nine.

The substantial development operation also includes plans to create a state-of-the-art multi-sport facility alongside significant upgrades to Vilamoura’s existing equestrian centre.

Nuno Sepulveda, Co-Chief Executive Officer at DETAILS - Hospitality, Sports, Leisure, said: “We are very excited about taking our amazing properties in Vilamoura to the next level, not just in terms of improving and future-proofing our superb facilities, but ensuring our guests continue to create unforgettable memories.

"Since 2023, we have made significant changes to the sites — with sustainability at the core of those changes — and we are looking forward to sharing our world-class facilities with our guests”
